We’ve all been there – in class or lecture after a long night of doing something far more fun. How do you possibly stay awake?

This meerkat gives an illustration of the recommended technique.

  1. Feign interest in the topic at hand.
  2. Realize that you have no business trying to feign interest.
  3. Accept defeat and acknowledge that you’re going to get more from sleep than trying to listen to someone ramble on about something you couldn’t possible care about right now.

The meerkat is a small mammal that belongs to the mongoose family. You’ll find them in Botswana and South Africa.

The meerkat is well-known for pulling all-nighters and partying late into the night – this particular one, anyway.
